You know what you got?

Better gear than current EWH. It has more stats, so works better for PVE. And because this also fixes Bolster not working correctly for this gear compared to random greens, your performance in 30-54 warzones is actually increased.

Honestly, BW just can't seem to stop shi tt ing all over custmoers who've payed for and played this game for any length of time. This whole system was dreamed up to satisfy the F2P/casual gamers. For me, this is the last straw. I'm not going to help support a game that keeps punishing me because I worked for a LONG time to aquire my gear.
Thanks for a whole bunch of nothing.

wait.. what?

You realise that the damage boost is a lot bigger than the protection you got right?

And you also realise that the enemy team also doesnt have expertise anymore unless they are 55's trolling levellers, right?

lol man
you must be new to mmo

In this game you get to have full gear AND min/maxed in 2 less than 2 weeks....
what are you talking about?

In every other game it would take me months to get the level of the gear i get here in 2 weeks (softcore playing)

I have just about full EWH gear... I used up all my coms pre 2.0 to make sure I was going to be Geared for the transition... Just to find out that all the thousands of coms I used and countless pvp matches I ran were a waste. Ive got just about zero expertise in lvl 55 pvp matches now... Whats the PTS even used for. We should have known about this issue well in advance. Otherwise I wouldnt have wasted all the coms on EWH gear. Instead I was safe to assume it would be good gear to start with in the expansion for pvp.

I'm absolutely useless to my current Ranked team now. I want something to be done about this. This fix of yours is not a fix.. its a setback to countless ppl who spent hours and hours preparing for the update.. just to give those "gear vs skill" ppl an easier time in pvp. ERG! Very upset. -Redheaded

It is an upgrade but it is a hugely expensive one. Because Bioware cannot itemise gear for ****; all my PvP gear was Partisan Armourings with EWH mods/enhancements. Now however I have to remove every one of these mods/enhancements as under the bolster system I won't get bolstered for those items because they mix expertise and Pve items
